replacing stock 302 heads with windsor 351 heads - questions

Hey everyone-
My son and I are in the process of replacing the heads on a 302 5.0 . He bought the car specifically for the engine (It has cracked head or blown gasket) according to the previous owner. Well, we found some 351 Windsor Heads to replace the stock 302 heads. We have the engine torn down - (still in the car) , removed the intake and old heads, and in the process of scraping off old head gaskets / cleaning surface. We are wantjng to replace intake now and wondering if you all have any suggestions as far as what intake?

Is this a fuel injected or carbureted motor you're building? Is this a daily driver or a track beast? And what sort of RPM are you shooting for?

Based on that, I would stick with a decent, name brand dual-plenum intake that's good for the idle-5500 rpm range. If you start moving your rpm up, say to a 1500-6500 rpm peice, you're gonna lose a little low-end drivability/economy that's pretty important for a DD. Now, admittedly, I'm not sure how pairing a 1500-6500rpm intake with a stock cam is going to react, I'm guessing you'd just lose a little low-end.
